I heard that in the Navy
the food was mighty fine
a chicken jumped off the table
and started marking time.

I heard that in the Navy
the coffee was mighty fine
it looks like muddy water,
it tastes like turpantine.

I heard that in the Navy
the women were mighty fine,
they look like Godzilla,
they kiss like Frankenstein.

I heard that in the Navy
the toilets are mighty fine,
you flush them down at seven
they come back up at nine.

I heard that in the Navy
the pay is mighty fine,
they give 100 dollars
and take back 99.
